AMR is increasingly predicted to affect health and wellbeing on an international scale. New technologies and greater understanding are required to mitigate against and reduce resistance to effective treatments against infectious diseases around the world.
Since 2017, the centre based in Oxford has coordinated the implementation of an AMR monitoring project at reference sites in India, the Philippines, Nigeria, and Colombia and has already helped improve the detection and tracking of outbreaks and AMR populations. The full results of the project can be read in a special edition of Clinical Infectious Diseases. The project’s partners were Dr Ravikumar at the Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences in India, Dr Celia Carlos at Research Institute for Tropical Medicine in the Philippines, Professor Iruka N. Okeke at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria, and Dr Pilar Godoy at AGROSAVIA in Colombia.
